Aboriginal People Threatened with Closure of their Homelands 

Media release during Australian Catholic Bishops plenary meeting | 28 November 2014

The Australian Catholic Bishops express their deep concern for Aboriginal peoples threatened with the closure of their remote homeland villages in Western Australia.

This is a time for Federal and State Governments to pursue meaningful consultation with those affected.

Our governments need to exercise restraint and compassion for the first peoples of this country who enjoy a spiritual affinity with their traditional lands.

Chair of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference Commission for Relations with Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders and Bishop of Broome Christopher Saunders is available as a spokesman on this issue.
